Lasting Effects Months After Scintillating Scotoma?

  • By terklebasi09

    I used to get migraines all the time as a kid/teenager and I’ve always had headaches and sensitivity to light/sound/smell etc. But there was a period of time where the full-blown migraines stopped. This summer, I had surgery under general anesthesia for something completely unrelated. But afterwards, I had all sorts of dizzy spells and lightheadedness. I also experienced my first aura migraine with scintillating scotoma. I’ve had MRI’s and numerous tests done to rule out anything concrete. And the dizziness has dissipated, although not disappeared. However, I notice my right eye’s vision still feels affected, months after the scintillating scotoma. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I’ve not experienced anything similar to this, but hopefully those who have will be along shortly to share their story with you.
